TEDGlobal 2013, themed “Think Again,” begins today — June 10 — in Edinburgh, Scotland. After an impressive buildout over the weekend, attendees have started streaming in.

The first session of talks, “Moments of Truth,”  will begin on Tuesday morning at 11 am BST. We’ll be tweeting in detail from @TEDGlobal and more sparingly from @TEDNews. You’ll also be able to follow the conference beat-by beat here at the TED Blog — in both images and words. To start you off, a look at our setup efforts.
